Packing light is once again& a la mode. As the author Antoine de Saint-Exupery once said: 'He who would travel happily, must travel light.' When it comes to your suitcase, less really is more, leaving you light on your feet and free to immerse yourself in local culture and nature without being weighed down. However, regarded as an art, a science, or even a necessary evil, packing is a task all travellers must tackle before their journey even begins, yet not many of us, do it well or approach it with any sense of pleasure.
Let us fix that! Step away from that mountainous pile of clothing, get up off that suitcase you're trying to squash shut, and allow this book to unclutter your path to luggage liberation. Indeed, packing light can take more time and strategy. Happily, this guide will teach you the skills to decide what is absolutely necessary and what can be done without.
